    Hi all,
    Unfortunately, the old forum data got lost in a server crash.
    You are all welcomed to join again (or for the first time) and recreate the Basic4ppc community.
    This forum is based on vBulletin and should be more stable.
    Users of the old forum should register again.
    Regards,
    Erel

    Sorry to hear that the old forum died an untimely death, but it's great to be working under vBulletin - I'm already used to that from the Astraware forums! Nice choice, Erel!

    Even though the old server died, is there not an old back-up that some of the data could be retrieved from??
    I saw this topic http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22 which refers to cached remains of the old forum scattered across Google etc.
    It's a pity to think that all that knowledge has been lost and we have to start again.

    I still have the old database backup file and the attachements with examples and things, and the database is the most important part.
    But converting all those old posts into vBulletin format will take along time and the integrity of the new forum would not be guaranteed since phpBB3 has a much more complex database table layout then vBulletin.
